The Obamas' Last Holiday Card From The White House Is Their Most Adorable Yet

The Obamas just sent out their final holiday card, and they look incredible.

Could this family look any classier?

The photo is from the State Dinner for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau back in March.

According to DailyMail.com, the inside of the holiday card features the presidential seal and says “Happy Holidays.”

It's accompanied by a note that says,

As our family reflects on our many happy years spent in the White House, we are grateful for the friends we've made, the joy we've shared, and the gifts of kindness we've received.

We wish you and your loved ones a joyous holiday season and a wonderful new year.

It's hard not to take this all somewhat bittersweetly.

Yes, the Obamas look amazing, and they're a first family we can be proud of.

But this card also signifies it's time to say goodbye.

We wish you and your loved ones a joyous holiday season and a wonderful new year.

After eight years, the Obamas are leaving the White House. We only have them for a few more weeks, and they will definitely be missed.

Not to mention, this holiday season comes upon us during a tough time for the country.

We've just gone through a very contentious election cycle and America is deeply divided.

With that said, as we say goodbye to the Obamas, it might also behoove us to heed the president's advice and words of wisdom on how to get through these dark days.

We Are Stronger Together

As the Obamas lit up their last national Christmas tree as the first family on December 1, President Obama offered an important message about America:

The holidays…offer us a time for reflection and perspective.

And over these next few weeks, as we celebrate the birth of our Savior, as we retell the story of weary travelers, a star, shepherds, Magi, I hope that we also focus ourselves on the message that this child brought to this Earth some 2,000 years ago — a message that says we have to be our brother's keepers, our sister's keepers; that we have to reach out to each other, to forgive each other.

To let the light of our good deeds shine for all. To care for the sick, and the hungry, and the downtrodden.  And of course, to love one another, even our enemies, and treat one another the way we would want to be treated ourselves.

It's a message that grounds not just my family's Christian faith but that of Jewish Americans, Muslim Americans, non-believers — Americans of all backgrounds.

It's a message of unity and a message of decency and a message of hope that never goes out of style.

And it's one that we all need very much today.

After eight years as your President…I still believe that there's so much more that unites us than divides us.

He added,

Before we leave tonight, I just want to express what an incredible honor it has been to serve this nation…and to feel its warmth and to feel its generosity, and how our family has been awed by America's goodness.

And, most of all, it has been so special to share these eight years with all of you.

It's been special for us, too.

Thanks, Obama.
